Looks at least very unfamiliar to me. First impression was rather negative.
Must see, if it feels better this afternoon, at second looks.

Looks odd here, too. At the very least a font change.

Yes, it is since yesterdays server "upgrade". It is really weird. Also, it is impossible to add pictures into post anymore mad.
Time to move to old, combatace forum?

@Sandbagger
How did you manage that? I lost this feature/icon from Full Editor and Personal Messages. Should I reenable this feature anywhere?
Probably need admin rights?

Probably due to losing the images etc at the top of the page too, we had a customisation on our forum. Will PM someone to see if it's coming back.

I added images by linking to my Photobucket as I don't tend to use the full editor 'insert image link' function, which is still available for me.
Previous threads still have their images showing so the capability is still there to show them.

However not for me (us).
An option "Add image" directly to post, without need to upload your image to any external links is not available anymore mad .

Wow. Dropped in for a quick visit between road trips and saw this new format. Not too keen on it at the moment, and the limited ability to post pics is kind of a deal breaker. JJJ65, your suggestion of moving back over to the old CA forums is looking pretty good right now, plus we could have our signature images back again - I really miss those.

Same reaction here, I'm afraid. Logged in this morning, thought my browser had broken the site...

I had to move this image to my Dropbox and then I could post it, but they've removed any and all of the abilities to edit the image. I'm with you guys, I really don't like the new layout. It will be really hard now to write our stories for the Centenary DID.

Edit: After posting, I discovered that this didn't even work. Jara, I think you are correct.

I hope this won't be the final version of this update, for reasons already mentioned in this thread.

The thing that ticks me off the most is the lack of support by the forum owners. I have been waiting two weeks after sending multiple messages to them about a problem and I have not heard a word from any of them!! It wasn"t like that at CA!

There is more info in this thread
http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4339385/1
There are responses from site admin - including the posting of images.

Also at the very bottom of the forum window there is an option to change the layout.
It is probably set to the old default of woff fixed.

For a short term fix try changing to UBBCentral-Crimson (I like that better)

I think the woff fixed will need to be fixed again - Pol mentioned WOFF had a custom one.

Both. I tried your recommended "Crimson" but it was even less desirable IMHO.
I settled back to the default.

Yep to each their own. I am not fond of the colors (mainly the RED), but I like the font size and shading better.

Uploading of images is being worked on. http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4339772/re-forum-upgrade-feb-22-9pm-est#Post4339772

Robert, I think this is how we are going to upload pictures from now on, unless you use some kind of image hosting site.

Edit: I don't like this because you are limited to 5 images and sometimes in our stories we need more.

Robert,
Use "full Editor". Under that look at "options". You will see attachments.

Stop hovering?

Sorry, couldn't resist, forum is weird for me too. I thought it was some side effect of the BWOC initiation rites at first but it's still happening.


Let's pretend I got the BWOC badge to embed here.

Don't like this new format at all, as well.

Why change something that was fine the way it was??

Did that for a WOFF art thread attachment. Got the image to load but don't know how to get it to post.

SteveW, after you have loaded the image into the Attachment Manager all I did was click 'Done' and then 'Post' and it displayed the image.

Check my post in the Third Wire Series section here at SimHQ, Robert. I've been waiting for support at ComatAce for about 2 weeks myself. I can login, but I can't post, or download, or even see forumn discussions.

So I don't know if things are better over there or not, support wise. nope

I must agree that the new forum layout is, at best, highly unappealing. Hopefully they are able to return things to normal sometime soon.

The one thing I like about the new format is that I can read the posts a little better on my cell phone.

I'm in complete agreement, I really don't like the new layout and it is going to make our story telling more difficult.

I know this is wishful thinking but it would go a long way to giving each user the look that he wants by allowing some configurable capability.

I personally loose the left columns on my cell phone and so have to specify web native view to get it all. That shouldn't be the case and I could overcome it if they would let me do the following:

Folks;

I just discovered another issue. You can no longer apply particular font colours to your text when using the "Link" feature.

I also do not like the "attachment" methodology for pictures because you cannot properly annotate them and custom place them in your post.

Geez. I wish they would do some cursory testing to identify these issues and at least take some time to see if there is a workaround or assess the impact on the community. Oh well, it is what it is I guess.

So this is just my two cents.

I would suggest posting your comments in this thread.
The forum admins are responding there.
http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4339385/forum-upgrade-feb-22-9pm-est

As for using the WOFF Fixed layout - from what I read yes that will have problems -
It has not been updated.
The one recommended by the forum admins is the Crimson one.

It works okay for me and looks good on my phone.

Robert, we seem to be stuck with this less than perfect upgraded forum. They seem to love it over on the SimHQ forums, so I guess we will just have to get used to it. It's a shame because this will really negatively impact our ability to weave our stories. sigh

Tried it, sent me to a SIM HQ page that said "All of the required fields are not filled in", don't know what those 'required fields' are. SW

Well, that's just it. It was "broke" by current standards, as it didn't work well on tablets. For some people, that was a big deal, as for whatever reason they use tablets for accessing the forums a lot, instead of a desktop PC or laptop.

Reference: http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.p...-on-android-due-to-popup-ads#Post4288563

Also, it should be kept in mind that SimHQ / RacerGT didn't code / write the forum software. It is Powered by UBB.threads™ PHP Forum Software. They had a new version that was tablet friendly, plus other improvements/fixes, so SimHQ updated to it. I suspect that were I in RacerGT's shoes, I would have made the same decision to update the forum software to the newer version.

I prefer the earlier method of image insertion in forum posts though, and wish we still had it for Private Messages too. So it goes, sometimes. (I imagine UBB threads new Attachment Manager enables some advantageous things for some types of forums)

Cyber, I made some suggestions to Murphy on how to resolve a few of these problems and I think it can be addresses if Racer dialogues with UBB on this. There are PHP coding methodologies that will work. Racer just has to actively push for a solution.

One thing that would help and is possible with PHP coding is to make the forum columns dynamically stretch/shrink to allow all columns to be visible on mobile devices and not truncate the "last post" column. It is doable. Fixed column widths is not desirable.

The appreciation should go to RacerGT. The rest of us try to help out where we can, but this stuff is his baby. We just hand him the wet wipes occasionally. winkngrin

Which Browser and version number of it, are you running on the iPad Air?

Have you tried any of the alternate Styles available on the Style Chooser pull down menu at the bottom of the screen?

On Windows10, Google highly blocking all the adds, trojans and cookies this site runs fine, so let me guess I have to block all the adds/cookies from SimHQ to keep on running this website on my Ipad? screwy
For me it does not have any sense in injecting my game desktop computer with all the internet crap, so if this SimHQ forum is not working on the Ipad, then sorry to say this forum does not have any use for me, because I'm using the Ipad for all the internet/Email activities.

Right now it is for me byby and hoping OBD does reconsider to swapping over to an problem free website. wave2

Yep that was the trick, it is working now, using Woff fixed, normally I could not read that because the last 50% of the webpage was white. I will delete my hars topic, sorry I was very frustrated while I could not read the Woff forum nor could see the solution for this problem.

Excellent! Thanks for the report back on what worked. Maybe that will solve the problem for Deacon211 also. thumbsup

Let me give it a try....I didn't even know there were other styles. The default had just always worked before.

Changing the style does seem to help and make the forum useable again.

But it still doesn't look quite like it used to. It's missing some of the original background graphics.

Basically... Right click on the Attached File image (You should be able to do that using the Preview Reply mode) and "Copy Link Location" to put it in your Windows Clipboard, then use the Full Editor's Insert Image Link, paste the Clipboard's link location into that. Repeat as necessary for each image, placing them within the text where you want to them to appear.

There may be an easier way that I haven't noticed yet. If somebody knows one, they are encouraged to share their knowledge. smile

Cyberkut;

Thanks for adding your instructions. I personally am quite aware of the process. The test post I put up was done because it was the only way I could copy the image location and port it over to a PM I was sending to someone.
As you are probably aware, the PM process does not allow you to attach images because the interface is not there yet. Hopefully you folks are working on resolving that issue.

Best Regards

I tried some of the other layouts. I guess it works. I think the issue I was primarily having was with the pre-update images spilling over into the new layout. The new, sadly small, images fit better.

So, do I understand that it is possible to directly upload pics to SimHQ again, just with some jiggery pokery?

Cyberkut, I hope this isn't taken the wrong way. But, given the centrality of screenshot uploading to the forums in general, I'm uncertain why the method wasn't identified as a big detractor from the upgrade choice.

Or was it, pull the handle or burn to death?

I don't know what the decision process was, as the decision was RacerGT's alone to make. I would guess that it was probably some combination of gaining the proper support for mobile devices (which are a growing segment of how the forums are accessed) and staying up-to-date in general as a means to better ensure security from hacking, etc. If I were in RacerGT's shoes, those considerations would have weighed heavily on my mind.

UBB threads serves many communities, so I'm inclined to think that the new version's framework is a product of hard won lessons from various forum operators. Bringing in support for mobile devices, with their smaller screens had to have involved making some compromises, or at least some other ways to deal with how some things are displayed. The online world has evolved in another way, too. Not all that long ago, people were limited more by connection speed (ie. Rate of throughput), whereas now, some people are running up against data caps instead. Either of those limits can put image size at a premium for some people.

EDIT: Almost missed the image upload question... Yes, you can upload images. When you are in the Full Editor, look down to the lower left. Click on the "Attachment Manager". Images uploaded through that will show up as thumbnails along the bottom of the post. If you want them to display as larger images in the body of the post's text, then refer to http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4343158/re-forum-layout-wierd#Post4343158.

Yes, sorry. I was asking about thread posting. I didn't realize that the thread was PM specific.

Thanks for the reply CyBerKut. I guess, having never had a problem with the forums on either of my iDevices, I didn't realize this was a problem. I'll need to look at that thread and see what I can make of it. The screenshot and art threads here have sort of fallen off, which is unfortunate since there was some beautiful work being done there. :-)

I know, since the upgrade the entire forum has slowed way down.

Yes, it's very slow now.

Sorry, but I still can't consider this change to be an upgrade over the old one in any sense of the word.

Folks, if you're seeing a slowdown of some sort, I strongly recommend you post about it over in the Site Feedback & Suggestions section, where RacerGT is more likely to see it. Describe/define it as best as you can.

CyBerKut, when we use the term "slow down" we aren't talking about response time, we are talking about visitors. Before the upgrade this forum was a busy, bustling place. Everyday we would have multiple threads going, but since the upgrade the traffic has almost completely ceased. Could be the time of year, but my fear is that the members really don't like the upgrade and are not coming back. Anyway, that's what we mean when we say 'slow'.

In my case this "upgrade" became inconvenient. I am unable to post any replies with my 1st gen iPad. I don't see the reply window:
[Linked Image]
To post this picture I had to take it with my iPad, send it to my rig, go downstairs and turn on my computer, simply so that I can post.
If the aim was to be convenient for the mobile devices they've succeeded. I am much more mobile now that I have to go up and down the stairs to post. Good for my health I guess. Bad for my forum activity. Trying not to complain since no one is expected to support a 7-year old device, but it worked fine before the upgrade and the reason for it was to make it work better with such devices.

Strange indeed. Looked ok after I had posted, then I went up the stairs (heh, heh), looked at it on the iPad and the image was gone. Went down the stairs and fixed it.

The added difficulty in posting seems to be putting a bit of a drag on posting in general for WOFF. Too hard to post pics, etc. frown Probably no chance of rolling back, I presume.

I would give my right arm if they would roll it back, but I was in IT for too long to know there isn't any chance of that happening.

Hmmm... 3 questions come to mind.

1. What is displayed to you when you select "Submission Detail" tab at the top?

2. What happens when you select "Use Full Editor" at the bottom?

3. Is there a newer version (or different) web browser that you can use on that device?

It's not my call to make, but my guess is that you are almost certainly correct.

To post this picture I had to take it with my iPad, send it to my rig, go downstairs and turn on my computer, simply so that I can post.
If the aim was to be convenient for the mobile devices they've succeeded. I am much more mobile now that I have to go up and down the stairs to post. Good for my health I guess. Bad for my forum activity. Trying not to complain since no one is expected to support a 7-year old device, but it worked fine before the upgrade and the reason for it was to make it work better with such devices.


Hmmm... 3 questions come to mind.

1. What is displayed to you when you select "Submission Detail" tab at the top?

2. What happens when you select "Use Full Editor" at the bottom?

3. Is there a newer version (or different) web browser that you can use on that device?


Hey CyBerkut,

1. Unrelated. Just another tab open to another website. (Trying to get my rebate from EVGA).

2. Pretty much the same thing - no reply window:

3. No newer version for iOS 5.1.1 - this is as high as she goes. This is also a case of tail wagging the dog. After 7 years of using Safari I'm not about to switch to a different browser because of one website.

Wow, that is weird with the editor.

I understand about not switching your web browser. I was thinking more along the lines of an additional web browser, rather than getting rid of your existing Safari. But, you may not have enough storage space left open to accommodate having a second browser.

Do you get the same results (No Reply Window) when you select a different style (The pull down menu at the bottom of the page)?

Yup, same result on any style scheme. I even tried enabling pop-ups. No worries. I know it's Safari. Reply window shows up on later versions of Safari. Tried it on my wife's iPhone that is able to update to later version of Safari. I will be forced to upgrade to a new iPad eventually.

Hi all,
I to was a little confused when the forum presentation changed, but rest assured, Racer and the SimHQ team are continuing to work their way through the latest UBB layouts.
We all have ideas on how things should be and there is always a reluctance to change - 'if it ain't broke' - look at the world of F1 as an example.
However please give the team time to work their way through the changes and give us all the best compromise the system will allow,

Thanks.
